Thanks for this great addition to MP, it is much appreciated. I can also vouch for the enjoyable nature of Site 18. All three of the routes you've listed are exceptionally fun, and I'd recommend them to anyone.

|the approach trail is now VERY well marked|

From the Circle Creek Overlook Trailhead (which has a new parking lot and bathroom btw) it takes about 30 min to get there. You follow the road north past the gate until you get to a fork. Take the right fork, up and around some lone formations, past a few formations in the trees and then past a ways until you cross a creek, head south and then come to the sign and crag on your right (west). Was a little confusing for the first time but if you just keep walking on the trail, it is very well marked.
This is a very nice, secluded crag with four routes side by side. Worth the hike. Can then continue on to Tahitian Wall or elsewhere. Its fun to be out in that part of the COR that is not frequently accessed.

Great little site. Would recommend for a smaller group that wants to avoid crowds while they work on easy/moderate routes. As for how to get there (from the Circle Creek Overlook), I want to second what wasatch-mtn-man wrote. I'll reiterate what he said, because both myself and other parties I've met still have had difficulties finding the way to the crag.
Make sure to go through that gate and follow the dirt road toward and past Building Blocks. Only after you've passed the Building Blocks do you turn right. The first time I tried to get to Site 18, I ended up on the Geological Loop Trail (not sure if that's what it's officially called) because I tried to go as the crow flies. Unfortunately, that will only lead you in a loop (surprise!). Have fun!
